In 2013 I collaborated with Vert d'Absinthe in Paris to develop a new product for their shop. They were looking for a brouille absinthe, and among the different propositions I made (from very geometric & minimalist to more decorative versions), the Art Nouveau was more suited to their identity.
A brouille absinthe is placed on the top of the glass, filled with sugar, water and ice, to slowly dilute the pure alcool, drop by drop. I designed a two parts brouille, with the water separated from the sugar in order to overcome the usual issues of the existing designs.
Starting from a 2D pattern, the structure is made out of a laser cut 2mm stainless steel sheet which is folded to support the glass shape.
A first series of fifty pieces has been manufactured in december 2013 and is currently commercialised exclusively at Vert d'Absinthe.
